Somewhere out in deep space – and out of the creative imagination of the animation aces of Hanna-Barbera Studios – live the Herculoids. Humanoid Zandor, along with his wife Tara and son Dorno, lead a group of unique creatures: Zok the flying dragon, powerful simian Igoo (who possesses rock-like skin), rhinoceros hybrid Tundro and two protoplasmic wonders appropriately named Gloop and Gleep. Together, they use their diverse super strengths to defend their utopian planet against attack from such sinister invaders as the Pod Creatures, the Reptons and the Mutoids. For all-family entertainment, this 18-Episode, 2-Disc Collection of The Herculoid: The Complete Original Animated Series is out of this world, literally.
With some DVD releases I write about, I feel like I need to explain myself or make a point as to why it is good that a show was finally released on DVD. With the release of the Herculoids – The Complete Series, I do not feel the need to do either of those things. After all this is THE Herculoids. A show beloved by millions of children who are now all grown up. It was almost beyond reason that it took them this long to put it out, but thankfully some wise Archivist at Warner turned their attention to the series and corrected the oversight.
This is not a remastered release sadly, but still it is nice to finally see this legendary season in its complete form and I do love this cover art:
So why are you dragging your heals? You know you love the Herculoids! Well here it is…just a click away. THIS CLICK – Drop by the Warner Archive and order a copy today.
